Perhaps the most advanced will remember the Seven Keys or Apalikha, with its absolutely beautiful old park. Meanwhile, in our region there are a huge number of wonderful places where you can have a great rest at least one, even with a company. The AiF-Penza team decided to prove it by personal example.
First, let's take a ride around the Penza region. Here it is definitely worth stopping by Kondol, where the museum of the Mozzhukhin brothers is located - Ivan, the world famous silent film actor, and Alexander, an outstanding opera singer.
From there we will turn for a short while to Voskresenovka, where the Klyuchevsky Museum is located, and then we will take the path to Solovtsovka. This place is wonderful for everyone - here, immersed in the green trees, there is the Church of St. Sergius of Radonezh, and in it there is a shrine with the relics of the holy elder John of Olenevsky. Above, along a quiet country road, there is a spring and two baths. This place is bright, warm - just one of those where the soul rests.
Let's take the path to the north-west - and sooner or later the road will lead us to the Narovchatsky district. The pearl of this place is the Trinity-Scanov Convent, founded in the second half of the 17th century, one of the main pilgrimage sites in the Penza region. Nearby, in Ploskaya Gora, there are the famous Narovchat caves - an ancient underground monastery. By the way, there is a similar place in the village of Sazanye in the Serdobsky region. But if the monastery in Narovchat is a place exclusively intended for contemplation, then in Sazan, in deep echoing caves, you can defend a real church service.
Those who are more inclined towards educational excursions should go to the house-museum of Alexander Kuprin - the only museum in the whole country. Immerse yourself in the atmosphere in which the author of "Duel" and "Pomegranate Bracelet" worked, and most importantly, hold his personal belongings in your hands.
Not far from the Kuprin Museum is the estate of the landowner Arapov, whose wife, Alexandra Petrovna, was the daughter of Natalia Goncharova, the wife of Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin. In ancient times, the estate was called "the guest palace"; Goncharova herself and the poet's children, Maria and Alexander Pushkin, often visited here.
The next stop is the Gorodishchensky area. Several ethnic villages are located here at once - in Vysheye, Kanaevka and Srednaya Yeluzan. Each is an island of living history with all its colors, with folk songs, legends and costumes. Guests of such villages can not only observe how people lived many years ago, but also plunge into this measured, original life: learn how to cook national dishes, weave baskets from vines, weave carpets. And for a while feel like in another era.
To the east of Gorodishchensky is the Sosnovoborsky District. On its territory is located - very respected and revered by both local residents and guests, the source of Nicholas the Wonderworker, where in the 18th century the icon of the Saint appeared. True. The source is located in Russian Kachim.
In the region there is an amazing place near Nizhnaya Lipovka - Shoe-Gora, where, according to legend, the Cossack-rebel Emelyan Pugachev once hid. Whether it is true or not - history is silent, but the place is very impressive.
Moscow is often called the city on seven hills. But not only the capital of the Russian Federation can boast of this title. Rome, Edinburgh, Jerusalem, Kiev, Vilnius and many other cities are built on the same hills. This list, according to the assurances of local residents, also includes Penza, located on the river banks. A city young by historical standards (founded in the 17th century) on seven hills and two rivers, Sura and Penza, attracts tourists not only for its location, but also for its sights, of which there are unexpectedly many.
Worth knowing: Penza residents are called Penza (modern) or Penzyaks (old name). They are called "Penzyuks" only by those who want to know the strength of the Penza fist.
